Britegam-Short Lambert- Billings Vitamins (Continued from Page 17) cannot supply the necessary vitamins and minerals. He views the RDA as inadequate. "We are all biochemically different, so averages are not good," he said of the government's recommendations about vitamin doses. Tombaugh and Robert L. Marietta, a local attorney, are members of a Salina organization that co-sponsors community seminars on personal health at Kansas Wesleyan University. Both men are proponents of orthomolecular medicine which is based on the theory that mental illness and deviant behavior are caused by chemical imbalances in the body. This new medical theory is controversial, and existing research is not accepted by traditional medical professionals. But Marietta says a surprising number of crim- inals could be helped with nutritional therapy. As an example, he cites a case of a man with a history of writing bad checks. Tests found a high serum level of lead in his body, a condition that was corrected through a process called chelation and doses of vitamin C. "And he has never written a bad check since," said Marietta. Tombaugh says nutritional analysis is a good idea, particularly hair analysis because it shows a person's condition over a period of time. But the cost may be prohibitive for some people. Proper nutrition, say Tombaugh and Marietta, calls for a tailored diet that is low in sugar, salt and caffeine — a lifestyle adjustment made by cutting out junk foods and increasing fiber. For them, vitamin supplements are equal to preventive health care. Tombaugh takes a high-quality multivitamin along with one to three grams of vitamin C each day. "Most doctors would consider anything over 60 milligrams too much, but that is totally inadequate in my mind," he said. If a person exceeds his tolerance for water- soluble vitamin C, it causes diarrhea, Tombaugh says. The answer is to "just back off the dosage." He says there are no published serious effects of vitamin C "megadosing" with the exception of diarrhea. However, he cautions that fat-soluble vitamin D is one that can be dangerous in large doses. It does not pass out of the body as water-soluble vitamins do and can cause damage to internal organs. "I would recommend a person not exceed three times the RDA," he says. The RDA for vitamin D is 400 international units. Still, the risks of megadosing are minimal compared to other drugs, such as Valium or even aspirin, Marietta says. Tombaugh concurs. "How many people have tried to commit suicide on vitamins?" he asked. Karrie Kristine Britegam and Michael John Short exchanged marriage vows Dec. 24 at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jack E. Britegam, 102 S. Estates Drive. The Rev. Thomas Glenn of the First Presbyterian Church, Salina, officiated. The groom is the son of Maureen Short of Golden, Colo. Honor attendants were Jill Sheppard of Aurora, Colo., and Jack Britegam of Salina. Katie Britegam of Salina was also an attendant. A champagne reception and buffet dinner followed. The bride, a Salina High School graduate, has a degree in family and child development and child psychology from Kansas State University. She is an office administrator for Security Control Corp., Englewood, Colo. Her husband graduated from Arvada High School, Arvada, Colo., and Western State College, Gunnison, Colo., with degrees in mechanical drawing and commercial lettering. He is a contractor for PBC Company, Denver. The couple reside at 1391 S. Peoria Court, Aurora. Diet Men thank fraternity 'mom' (Continued from Page 17) a safe range of the RDA. Consumers must beware of pills containing more than 100 to 150 percent of the RDA; these could result in megadosing if a person already is eating 100 percent of certain vitamins, says George. Her family doesn't take supplements, but her husband eats a vitamin-packed bowl of breakfast cereal every morning. George says she sometimes takes an iron supplement, and notes that women sometimes don't get enough calcium. "If I didn't drink three or more cups of milk a day and exercise, I would supplement my calcium intake," she says. She determines nutrition programs for others through blood tests, diet history and the patients' health and age. George says she wishes hospitals would routinely analyze a patient's blood for nutritional deficiencies upon admission. For the public, she suggests such testing could become part of an annual physical. Alaska cost $7.2 million Secretary of State William Seward in 1867 signed a treaty with the Russian minister to purchase Alaska for $7.2 million. By The Associated Press STILLWATER, Okla. — Her "sons" and their sons and grandsons number many hundreds now. They are scattered all over the country and have lived in many corners of the world. At her retirement in 1961, Katherine C. Woods held the distinction of the longest service as a fraternity housemother in America in what began for her as a temporary position in 1924. She believes the record still holds today. Still beloved by her sons, the men of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity, she was honored recently with a reception at the chapter house at Oklahoma State University. And Mayor Calvin Anthony proclaimed her 95th birthday as Katherine C. "Mom" Woods Day. Although she retired almost 25 years ago, she continues to be the confidante of the young men of SAE and is cherished by active members and alumni. They still visit at her home near the fraternity, learn the history of their chapter and receive the benefits of her wisdom. Born and reared in Oklahoma City, she is the daughter of a pioneer father, a Sooner, she says, who rode in on horseback in 1889. Her mother came in on the first train and they met and married in 1889. "I really was a pioneer baby," she says proudly. It was providence that led her to her position as housemother in 1924, she says. She agreed to act as housemother on a temporary basis for a local fraternity, Chi Beta. "They were the loveliest boys," she says, "the finest young men." Some were older than she, having served in World War I. "But I didn't let them know it," she says. It was a challenge too, she says, to help the men with the petition and subsequent activities required to make the chapter an affiliate of SAE. She still speaks with emotion about the closing of the fraternity house during World War II and saying goodbye to the fraternity members, some of whom might never return. "I was as much in the army as they were," she says, recalling the 800 lithographed newsletters she sent them each month. The newsletters were financed by the alumni. Sometimes the correspondence brought fraternity brothers together. Once, when Woods noticed two of the men had the same APO number, she put them in touch with each other. Far from home, they had a tearful reunion on the Italian Riviera, she says. After the war, the fraternity house was a dormitory for independents. One day, eight of the men appeared — one still on crutches — and persuaded those in charge to allow them to live in the basement of the house. Woods recalls being careful not to show partiality, but she says she had a special soft spot for those eight who had returned from the war. Woods was housemother to oilman T. Boone Pickens Jr. and former Oklahoma state senator Robert Murphy. Testimony from some of the men shows that she played no small part in their lives. Byrle Killian, now a member of the Oklahoma State Board of Regents, says when he was a senior he practiced lectures for an adult Vo-Ag class in Perkins with her. "She was my critic and my student," he says, adding he uses something she taught him every day. One of the men returned years later to say, Woods recalls, "I've been a success in my position, and I've come back just to tell you I would not have been a success if it hadn't been for you and the training you gave us." Milford "Micky" Smith, notes each SAE fraternity brother had to memorize "The True Gentleman" and recite it as a pledge. "She made each of us one," he said. In reflection, Woods says her sons were always "so kind, so good, so precious, and they still are." "I love that house because it was my home for so long. It was a glorious life; the Lord has been good to me. Unrein- Santiago Barbara A. Unrein became the bride of Nick R. Santiago Dec. 28 at the City-County Building. Associate District Judge John J.
